InDesign offers unique advantages for kick-starting a website design, such as its unmatched typographic control, pixel-perfect positioning, and fluid, intuitive layout environment. InDesign offers designers who want to quickly create webpage prototypes a powerful toolset with robust text and object styles, page grid features, and interactivity—and none of the limitations of Photoshop, complexities of Dreamweaver, or burdens of hand-coding HTML and CSS. This course shows aspiring web designers how to set up documents for the web, utilize web fonts for maximum compatibility, design a navigation bar, and even mimic CSS with InDesign styles. The final chapter shows how to export your mockups as HTML, CSS, PDF, SWF, and web-optimized images that can be shown to clients or quickly published to the web.
Hi, I am Michael Murphy, and Welcome to InDesign for Web Design. In this course I'll show you how to build and design website mockups using Adobe InDesign. I'll start by showing you how to set up your documents with web-friendly colors, grids, and measurements. Then I'll show you how to streamline your design process with styles that allow you to easily transform and edit your text, objects, and images. We'll cover how to add interactive elements to your site like hyperlinks, video, and HTML content.
Then I'll walk you through different ways to export your web design and include the necessary information and visual reference a developer might need to build the site. We'll cover all of these features, plus more. So let's get started with InDesign for Web Design.
